I know ther is a local fun run on Saturday up in Sydney on Vancouver Island, Chris Hall is coordinating it, you can email him at [email protected] and see if any of the local people up there will be out on the water on friday.

There are a few hot spots down here in the Puget Sound, if the weather is nice there should be some boats out, but it looks like some showers this weekend. Our local site is www.nwoffshore.com

I'll PM you with my number so I don't have to type too much.

I live just north of Victoria, as pointed out, there is a "Fun Run" on Saturday (weather doesn't look great) but I read you are gone by then.
I am trying to get out for a shake down cruise on Friday, give me a call, I have a spare seat. Jeremy (250) 880-1067

PS. I don't have an MTI or Skater but it floats....

Sidney is even better Joe, closer to where I launch. Do give me a shout and we can set something up. Jeremy

Yeah, I had PRAWN and crab pasta for dinner. It was good. Of coarse I had to ask what Prawn was!

Sounds good, I am just hooking the boat up now, going to fuel up and hit the launch, make your way to the gas dock at Van Isle marina on Harbour Road in Sidney, I will pick you up there. Jeremy
